Who doesn’t love a gift card? Not only are gift cards thoughtful, but they also allow the recipient to purchase products and services that they really value. While many people feel pressured to get new moms specific gifts, close friends, and family members should feel entirely comfortable giving new parents gift cards that they can use at their own discretion. To that end, today we’ll share a few great gift card ideas for the new parents in your life. Check them out here and give them the greatest gift of all –– spending power:
It’s tough to go wrong with an Amazon gift card. The fact is that you can buy pretty much anything on Amazon, so an Amazon gift card essentially amounts to cash these days. What’s more, Amazon is famous for its fast turnaround times and reliable delivery system. So if new parents ever find themselves in need of a hard-to-find item, then they can always use a few extra bucks on Amazon. Note, a Target gift card can be a good substitute for an Amazon gift card. Plus, Target has more physical stores than Amazon, so if a parent really needs an item ASAP (think diapers, baby food, earplugs, etc.), they can usually find it at Target.
Give this gift with care. While millions of new parents struggle to help their baby or toddler develop healthy sleep habits, the reality is that people can be quite sensitive about this topic. However, professional sleep consultants can help new parents promote healthy sleep habits for their children and themselves. Depending on the situation, giving new parents a gift card to a respected sleep therapist can prove to be an incredibly thoughtful gift.
Any Nice Restaurant
Naturally, most gifts that new parents receive relate in some way to their new domestic situation. This makes a lot of sense. Yet, just because two people recently had a child, it doesn’t mean that they cease to be a couple or to have personal needs, interests, and desires. Giving new parents a gift card to any nice restaurant in town then provides them with a great opportunity to call up a babysitter one night and hit the town again.
Vitamin & Supplement Shops
Many new parents love trying out new multivitamins and supplements to maintain their fitness levels as they enter a new stage of life. It’s worth remembering that though over-the-counter treatments like vitamins are popular and can be effective, they’re no replacement for professional medical advice. (Doctors have access to sophisticated lab equipment like cell culture flasks. Retail vitamin shops don’t.) Still, a gift card to a popular supplement store chain could be the perfect gesture to the new parents in your life who have a passion for fitness!
